Social Bartering with Favabank...

Favabank Community Bartering Favabank is modernising the age old idea of barter, exchanging items and time as favours between members of your community. Connect with people in your neighbourhood via the exchange of favours.

Bartering Favours Next time you need a helping hand or need to borrow something, why not try to source it from your local community?

Barter and Recycle Your Unwanted Stuff All barter exchanges are tracked using a virtual currency called a 'Fava', to create a 'gift economy' where the more you have given, the more likely that people will want to reciprocate. The Fava is the foundation for 'pay it forward' economics.

Advice on where to visit in Kent

Posted by Jenny Durrant on Friday 6th May 2011, 12:27PM

My husband and I will be taking a much deserved (and long awaited) weekend break and we're thinking of visiting Kent as neither of us have really spent much time in the county in the past.

If anyone has any suggestions on which areas might be worth staying in, we'd really appreciate it.

Somewhere where it is quiet and relaxing and we can really re-charge and relax.

Thanks!

I'm from Kent and the only good thing is the bus out in any direction! Leeds Castle is well worth a day trip!

Isn't there only really one direction from Kent? Unless you want to drive into the sea...

Thanks Tony - I've often seen signs for Leeds Castle and wondered what it was like.

Also Jen:

If Favabank was fully up and running with plenty of members living in Kent, you could have posted this as a 'Local' post, using a Kent postcode to get input from local people...

Was that obvious when you posted or do I need to make it obvious?

I just wanted to say hi! I've only been to Kent to see anoying customers that don't want to buy anything. I do know someone from there though, so I might ask them if I see them down the pub soon. Mmmmm.... pub!
